At a glance there is a seemingly large consensus into which breeder is the most experienced of the two from which you've proposed.
has one more STRONG
recommendation from me.
I have my first GSD from Malinda and not only is this puppy the most beautiful dog but Malinda's description of the puppy and her recommendation to me based upon my needs / circumstances are given with pinpoint accuracy and precision. She knows her breeding and she knows her pups.
Yesterday I was reading a thread that was posted in which the OP was forced to make the dreaded decision whether to euthanize an otherwise well behaved dog that was aggressive towards other dogs.
Within this forum you will rarely
read comments from members who believe that the option of euthanasia be the best option.
They will scope out every detail of the post to determine if a correction from the handler or perhaps in the hands of a more experienced handler would benefit the pup.
In this case it was ultimately determined that the underlying cause of aggression had little to do with environment, lack of training, or neglect but with genetics.
The purpose of this digression directs you to the fact that genetics is paramount in selection. Red flags should be thoroughly investigated or crossed off the list completely.
My recommendation for Malinda echo's all the positive comments in this thread.
The reason I give a STRONG
recommendation is because anytime
I speak to Malinda she shares the same joy, excitement, and concern for my puppy's development as I do...every time
I was honestly astonished to hear the enthusiasm in her voice to answer my questions that must have been asked a million times.
It was at that moment that I knew she was the breeder I would choose or suggest over and over again without the slightest hesitation.
